QLD also reduces to single lanes both M1 and Gold Coast Highway. Took 25-30 minutes to get through on Saturday morning M1, a little quicker on Thursday morning through Gold Coast Highway.As a border resident, we've been suffering at the hands of various governments for six months now. What genius thought that dividing a reasonably large city in half, and leaving it that way for months on end was a good idea?
Locking residents out of their own state is utterly disgusting. End of story.
Roadblocks. NSW police at least used multiple lanes, and even then the traffic jams were often huge. Vic pol make the dual lanes reduce to one. They may have two checking lanes, but the entry is alway single lane. End result is that the traffic banks up so far into Albury that it ends up crossing multiple traffic lights, which adds to the chaos. I know of quite a few people who simply avoid the trip to Albury, unless forced into it.
